Candy coma haze…

So, just coming out of a candy induced coma post Halloween and something seems a little off in the world. Did I miss something?

I’ve heard rumours that America elected a reality TV star to run the country. Apparently girls aren’t allowed to be president yet. To be fair, they aren’t allowed to be prime minister up here either. Plus we’ve got a high school teacher in charge of things.

Canada = bunch of high school students
USA = bunch of reality TV “actors”

I’m probably just going to stay on my side of the continent for awhile, high school wasn’t that bad. You folks look out for each other down there.

Halloween approaching

I love Halloween… I really love it. I love the costumes, I love decorating, it’s just so darn much fun. Costumes are mostly ready, house is decorated with giant spiders and a giant spider web, and the little graveyard in the front flower bed, the projector is standing by to light up scary scenes in the upstairs window.

Yes indeed, we are all ready for the big day… except for the candy.

We can’t buy candy too far ahead of time or else we don’t have any left to hand out to the children. In fact, this is what I would probably look like if we had purchased candy in advance…

Yummmm… candy.

The neighbors are fighting again…

ME: Hey hon, the neighbors are at it again!

HON: What?

ME: I said, the neighbors are fighting again. Should we do something?

HON: Like what?

ME: I don’t know. Call the cops. Tell them to keep it down.

HON: Don’t bother, it won’t make a difference. They’re just going to fight about something else when this one is over.

ME: Fair enough. I’m going to close the windows though, it’s pretty loud and I’m trying to concentrate on getting stuff done.

HON: Okay.

ME: But if they pull out the weapons and start shooting, we’re putting up a fence okay?

HON: They’re not going to start shooting at each other, don’t be so dramatic.

ME: I wouldn’t be so sure, have you hear the stuff they’re saying to each other? Maybe we should start pricing out fence materials… just in case.

So… when is that election again? Soon right? And then you’ll be done right?
